Dee McLean Art

London NW5

Dee is an artist inspired by nature, be it her local Hampstead Heath, Louisiana or Canada - the latter two are important to her because she lived in the former and her daughter now lives in the latter.  Dee has a background in medical drawings but in recent years has returned to painting the natural world using watercolours predominantly. She captures the detail of vegetation while her paintings transmit the relaxed nonchalence of the natural world.  Dee is very committed to communicating how climate change is affecting the planet and her art depicts a changing world. You can buy giclee prints of Dee's original works, or commission a painting.

Elizabeth Macregor Nursery is famed for its violas

Elizabeth Macgregor Nursery

Ellenbank, Tongland Road, Kirkcudbright, DG6 4UU

phone: 01557 330620

Elizabeth Macgregor Nursery is a small nursery and garden run by Elizabeth and Alasdair MacGregor, and their son John, in Galloway, south-west Scotland. We sell plants by mail order, at some flower shows and of course from the nursery. We produce a new catalogue each autumn, when we know what we have propagated and should have available for the following spring. We usually send plants in spring, March to early May. After this we will try to fulfill orders until the end of May, though taller plants will have to be cut back to fit a box.  No autumn deliveries.

Elizabeth specialises in cultivating violas and she has won prestigious awards for her plants, including the Wild Swan anemone

You can select and order plants through our online shop. When you have selected your plants the system sends me an email with your order, I will then confirm with an email, usually within a few hours.

Edward Bulmer Natural Paints

Edward Bulmer Natural Paint

Court Of Noke, Pembridge, Herefordshire, HR6 9HW

phone: 01544 388535

Eco-friendly paints are paints that don't off-gas and don't contain plastic. Edward Bulmer Natural Paint offers an extensive palette of wonderful colours and a paint that is plastic free and breathable. The paint is microporous which means it lets walls and woodwork breathe naturally. It does not form a plastic film which traps in moisture and mould. Owners of heritage and listed buildings understand the importance of breathable paints on old substrates but this is just as important for modern buildings. The matt chalky finish of our natural paints has both exceptional depth and a subtle response to light, which synthetic paints can't mimic. Colours are formulated by Edward Bulmer and the paint is manufactured in the EU.
